Milmont Greenhouses - I Saw. I Drooled. I Overspent.

Well, I actually reined it in a bit this spring.

But I still did, in fact, flinch when the cashier announced the amount.

The forces of nature converged to conspire against me. As you'll see from the photos, the plants looked especially green and the mountains looked especially blue. I was hypnotised by it all and lulled into that dizzying-out-of-body experience I have previously described when it comes to my visits to Milmont. Lordy, it is all about the potential!

A peek into my purchases . . . mostly herbs this year . . .

Lemon Verbena
Sweet Woodruff
Chocolate Mint
Three varieties of lavender
St. John's Wort
German Chamomile
Purple Sage
Spicy Globe Basil
Pineapple Sage
Creeping Thyme

Oh my! You're one buisy lady. I try to stay out of big nurseries. I have no willpower!

I wish I could go on garden tours of many of the gardens that I 'know' online. Your's would be one of them. :)

I wish you could too!! I'd be at your place in a heartbeat . . .

Nooooo, Tracey, don't BUY sweet woodruff, I'll give you some! (too late, I know). Seriously, if you would like some more let me know. It has crept into my driveway and needs pulling. All this from a little pot that my sister gave me from her patch a few years ago. :o)

Oh, those Blue Ridge Mountains are so lovely. Did I mention my mom grew up in Harrisonburg?

Tracey said...

Oooo! Goodie! Thanks so much for offering Betsy. I really, really love it.
It is also GREAT to see you here - leaving comments and such!

Steph - No, I didn't know about your mom and Harrisonburg. Still have family there?
